Clean, Vintage, Punched Card

I wanted something Clean, yet I adore Vintage... So I grabbed our Groom Specialty Paper, Some Glossy White Paper and went to work with our Sale A Bration Stamp set! Here - the results may be a lil too clean for my taste.
When punching the borders... a lil strip is left after the cut off... I simply adhered this extra strip to the Glossy White... the paper has that Glossy and Matt texture and look and goes smashingly with the Glossy White base for this card.

I ADORE this Stamp Set!! So classy and fun and with our new Clear Mounted Rubber Stamps... it's easier to place the words directly in the middle like this! This Stamp Set goes with this mat and glossy texture when I embossed it in black on white paper and punched it out... and since the stamps can ALL be Punched out... what a simple and cool card!!

Here you can see the reflection of the two textures... I like the 'Modern' feel to this Vintage look... it's very eclectic in a way... I hope you enjoyed this... it's easy and fun to make! I like that this card, too, can be for a man and or woman, a younger or older person... and it was an easy under 10 minute card... gotta love our punches!!

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
